This bike got here to me a couple of years in the past just about inventory with the everyday candy, old-man modifications like a windshield, clamp-on aux lights, and many others. It was the right candidate for constructing a strong runner. It seems this story is a type of traditional ones that simply whenever you thought your bike was carried out, it’s not!
I had this bike arrange how I needed it when my buddy Otto known as me to debate working with Gigacycle as their West Coast vendor. I accepted his supply; it labored out with a brand new Corsair D entrance finish en path to me for set up and R&D. This one factor fully modified all the things! All of the elements that had gone into making my bike what it was at this level now not appeared right to me. It was time to step my sport up. I made a decision to place collectively a budget-build bike that’s reasonably priced to the widespread working man and constructed virtually solely from the catalog on our web site speed-kingscycle.com.
Our first transfer was to toss out our outdated and improve to the RWD FXRT fairing. This actually set the temper for this bike and matched properly with the Gigacycle Corsair D entrance finish. We then determined to go for the total FXDRT look with the JD Clam Shells and the Pace-Kings hoop crash bar. As soon as we mocked all the things up we knew this was it.
We then tore it down and drove out to Landers, California, to drop all the things off with Joel England for paint. We had talked prior, and I stated he may have free vary and that I solely needed to take care of black and silver. He had completed the paint in seven days and despatched me an image of his masterpiece, and I used to be blown away!
Nearly each half on this bike got here from our personal web site and actually showcases what we do as an organization right here at Pace-Kings Cycle Provide. We put this bike collectively to be a day by day runner, dependable, comfy, and at all times able to crush miles.
I’d like to present a giant due to Ryan Loughridge (@loughridge) for at all times snapping pics of the bikes, Otto at Biltwell Inc. for at all times serving to out, Tim at Gigacycle Storage for numerous late-night conversations and ensuring this bike wasn’t carried out till it was carried out, and Joel England (@joel845) for knocking the paint out of the park.
